It’s time for March’s Fishing Report in St. Pete Beach! The fish are hungry and rewarding us with plenty of memorable catches. Here’s why and what you can catch this March:

The Waters are Warming Up in March

The waters are starting to warm up, enticing the fish to come out of their winter hide and bite anything they see! They’re begging for something to eat. Things should get better day by day, but it’s already providing great value for money for many experts and families!

March is the last month of winter, so the air temperature is warming up too – giving us a great blend of fresh ocean air without burning sun.

  • March lowest water temperature: 61.6°F
  • March highest water temperature: 67.2°F
  • Average March Humidity: 76%
  • Average Daylight: 11.2 hours

Snook Are Hot in March in St Pete Beach

The snook are sunning themselves in the shallows during March in St Pete Beach, giving us the chance to pick out our catches. Enjoy incredible sight as the sun glimmers of the water, and these yellow icons feed on crustaceans and, hopefully, your bait!

When fishing for Snook in St Pete Beach in March, we’ll find them along the mangroves, grassy flats and inlets. They may also be around piers and bridges for a slightly harder but more rewarding catch.

Nonstop action. Let’s go get ‘em!

It’s Redfish Time!

Head out at sunset this March in St Pete Beach to make the most of stunning sunsets and electric Redfish bite! These drum family members have large black spots on their tails and are loving the warming waters.

Every year over 700,000 people head to Florida, and one of the most popular reasons is the huge redfish! It’s Redfish time!

Gator Trout Challenge in St Pete Beach

This March’s fishing report in St Pete Beach has to mention the tonnes of Spotted Sea Trout hungry to bite in the grass flats. These spotted fish can live up to 15 years and reach impressive lengths of up to 40 inches (weighing 17-18lbs).

However, if you can land one of the larger sow females (a.k.a Gator Trout), you’ve got your hands of a trophy fish worthy of a photo to show off! These fish present a super challenge for any angler this March in St Pete Beach.

What Else Can I Catch in March in St Pete Beach?

Triple Tail are out in numbers and are some of the best-tasting fish you can find in March in St Pete Beach. We head out to crab buoys or structures to find them. Here you can enjoy a great fight on light tackle.
